Using Accordance content for teaching

Hi,

 

I am wondering what, if any, restrictions there are if I were to copy-paste maps/images/charts from Accordance modules and use it for handouts or post it on my blog as a supplemental notes to my sermons. In particular I am wondering about contents from ESV Study Bible and The Photoguide / Atlas / Timeline. Thanks.

For teaching you are welcome to use anything, though we alsways appreciate credit. The only restriction is that images may not be posted on the web without express permission, as these are usually copyright. Maps and Timelines are your work using our tools, so no problem.

Ken, I've found so many of the images in Accordance to be helpful when teaching. I believe one key in using them is to simply give credit to the source. If I'm using one of these images in a Keynote presentation, I either give source credit immediately on the slide, or I include a list of all sources on a final slide which I display as I wrap up the session or answer any remaining questions.

Thanks Helen/R.M.

 

I would, of course, be happy to give credit where credit is due. It's only right, and I wouldn't mind plugging Accordance a bit either. I just wanted to make sure what I wanted to do was proper. Is there anyone from Crossway on this blog who can comment on the use of materials from ESV Study Bible?

 

And whom do I contact to get permission to reuse images in the Photo Guide? I don't have the Photo Guide yet, but I would purchase it as soon as I can get clear answers about this. Thanks.

If anyone is interested about using materials from ESVSB, this is what I heard from Crossway.

We hope that you will be able to use these helps to supplement your sermons.

Subject: ESV Study Bible use

 

Hi,

 

I own the Accordance module for ESV Study Bible, and have questions about accepted use policy. Is it acceptable to Crossway that I use maps and charts from ESV Study Bible for non-commercial teaching purposes. Specifically, I am thinking of using it in my blog and / or handouts at church to complement my sermons. I will, of course, provide full copyright information each time I make use of materials in the ESVSB. I'd appreciate any information you can provide. Thank you.
